Creating an elegant garment can be almost effortless with the right pattern. The simple beauty of this polished sleeveless top springs from two variations of razor lace. The push and pull of yarn overs and double decreases create delicate peaks and valleys at the bottom trim. Worked flat in a single piece with a back seam and buttons at the back neck placket, you’ll get all the pleasure of knitting lace with none of the stress of seaming it. The sole back seam goes together easily.
